Fela Kuti with Ginger Baker - Live (1971)
Fela Kuti with his band, the Africa 70, doing their thing. Features extended tracks with grooves that mixed African and funk rhythms, punctuated by rudimentary lyrics. Ex Cream/Blind Faith drummer Ginger Baker's drum battles with Tony Allen make for some super tight and funky rhythm sections. This album is so funky it'll make your head spin. Add it to your collection!
